  1. I find the high frequency transit idea when you examine the link, really bad. Southwood is a perfect example. Both current routes have about the same ridership. Eliminating them both for one route for higher frequency makes little difference in that area due to density and lifestyle. But to make it worse, you further alienate riders by wiping out half of Southwood from easy access to transit. In the winter time, that extra couple to 5 minutes could mean severe frostbite, especially for youth who are a large proportion of riders. Not even to mention this would add double the stress to an already overloaded DATS service.
